Assange confirms that Trump campaign contractor sought help from WikiLeaks

Source: The Guardian [UK]

"A data-mining firm that worked for Donald Trump’s election campaign made an approach to WikiLeaks, founder Julian Assange said on Wednesday. The statement followed a report in the Daily Beast that Cambridge Analytica chief executive Alexander Nix made contact with Assange about the possible release of 33,000 of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s missing emails. 'I can confirm an approach by Cambridge Analytica [prior to November last year] and can confirm that it was rejected by WikiLeaks,' Assange tweeted. He did not elaborate on the content of the request." (10/26/17)
